Chambray!

While chambray and denim are often confused for one another, they’re not exactly the same fabric. A chambray is a plain weave fabric woven with a colored yarn in the warp and a white yarn in the weft. Like chambray, denim is made with a colored yarn in the warp and white in the weft, but is woven in a twill construction. The chambray’s warp and weft threads will alternate one over the other, while denim’s warp thread will go over two threads in the weft before going under one. Typically, you will notice a lighter color to the underside of a denim fabric, whereas the underside of chambray will appear much more similar to its face side.
I have a slight obsession for denim and chambray is just a perfect alternative for warmer days as wearing denim can be quite heavy in the summer.
Lighter weight chambray can have either a dressy or casual appeal. Some will be woven with a tighter weave and have a nice shine and dress up nicely, while others will have a very noticeable fabric slub and a looser, gauzier weave that is better suited for casual shirting.
For our looks I went for the lighter weight,
showing two different styles with the same kind of pieces. I combined my dress with heels for a dressy look, as for Sifare is wearing her dress with her favorite boots which makes her look casual and playful.
What I love about the “denim” look is that you can throw in any pop of color, but my favorite would be red. Red and denim is classic and will always go together. As much as I experiment with different looks and colors this combination is my number one , old time favorite.
